Product Description
This interactive and engaging lesson is a complete resource to introduce your students to the concepts of outer space in relation to Earth. Before introducing students to the planets, it is important for them to master The Sun and the Earth and important vocabulary terms such as orbit, revolution, axis, etc.

This lesson is a PowerPoint file to be played as a slideshow for your students. There are several pages of activities and questions to keep students engaged and participating in the lesson. Because there are questions and answers on multiple slides, this PowerPoint has been equipped with clickable animations so that the answers are not shown right after the questions are asked.

For example: With one click of the mouse, the question is displayed. The students have as much time to think of answers and responses as necessary. With another click of the mouse, the answer is revealed underneath the question.

This is a great way to have students involved in their learning, and it is also a quick and easy assessment as you progress through the lesson.

Included in this packet:
-an objective of what students will be learning/doing
-slides explaining rotation and how it relates to night and day with graphics
-slides explaining revolution and how it relates to the seasons with graphics
